See, I really prefer the sketch vs the actual mini render for this one. I have no need of either version for my predominantly fantasy miniature collection, but still.

Yep, the feeling and look of sketch vs miniature is really different for all the examples shown so far.

Should have given her a Boys .55" anti-tank rifle instead of the Bren Gun. 

 

I mean, give the girl a little more to play with!

 

And what, paint her as Seras Victoria, ala Hellsing?

Why?

 

The Boys gun was in use by the British forces until 1943 when it was replaced with the Piat. 

And since she doesn't have the shoulder flash, her uniform is definitely Pre-1943.     

(They got the official black shoulder flashes in 1943. They replaced the red flashes with the silhouette of a Jerboa - an actual Desert Rat - made by the wife of the Major-General that took command in April 1941.  No idea exactly when that flash wntered use, or how many used it)

 

So, without black shoulder flashes, she's wearing a uniform typically for the time when the Boys was still in use in the 7th Armored Division.

 

The Boys gun was actually decent against early tanks such as the Panzer I and II, and even early versions of the III.

I was going to say, 'why not', which ... well, we do paint a lot of things because we can...

but that's pretty interesting, (if largely no use to me. ^^; ).

 

I was originally thinking of something like Seras' utterly ridiculous (-ly effective) Harkonnen cannon, I admit.

For a campaign I have no interest in, I'm finding this oddly fascinating.

 

The whole pin-up art turned into "normal" sculpts thing both baffles and amuses me.

Also, The Bren is a crew weapon, gunner and loader. The Boys is a single person weapon. 

So if you have someone with a Bren, where's the other one?

We got several of the previous Kickstarter, and the quality of the sculpts and the metal casting where both great.  Love those first 2, so will probably back again.

I must admit for a topic like this, I would like the actual minis to look more like the concept art.

I like the pin up style but it's getting lost in the transition it seems.

Also I hope there will be resin versions, I'm reaching the point where I prefer those over metal.

Well, I am of two minds on that. The concept art is fun, but the more sober minis I can actually use in games. I don’t know if it’s really a matter of being lost in translation so much as they wanted to make a certain kind of mini but thought the more eye catching art would draw people in.

 

the company itself is a historical rules company but just released their historical with fantasy elements board game. So I think they went in with the idea of just girls in uniforms. The concept art kind of does throw that off though. 
 

as far as resin... I would prefer the 28mm in resin too, as I much prefer resin to metal, but they stated there will not be a resin option for 28mm. :(

 

 

there is a video in their Anno Domini Kickstarter update talking about this project.

I paint for display and fun, don't play games, so that's why I would like the pin up style more.

For me it would be one or two minis to show off.

 

Sad there will be no resin.

I will keep an eye out how the Aztec Girl and the Conquistadore will look.

32mm I can still display in the army.

It ranges from 28mm to 32mm so she will be in the back of the force than..

Depending on the look I will either back or let it slide.

indeed. I hope they appeal to you. I used both the swashbuckler and Scottish girl as pathfinder characters. There was a stretch goal in their board game that gave cards so you could used the period appropriate girls from ks 1 as a faction in the board game, Anno Domini.

me too, but the metal ones from 1 were good. I generally don’t like metal, but these were nice. They were multipart but not too many pieces and no super tiny metal pieces.

So, the video yields the following information:

 

* the initial offering will be 10 girls, in 5 pairs of historical enemies. 
 

* first will be a Greek warrior and a Persian. Followed by The desert rat and an Italian soldier. 
 

* unlike the first Kickstarter, these ladies will have more fighting poses vs pin up poses. 
 

* they ran out of stretch goals last time and had to scramble but this time they have prepared. 

 

* there will be guest artists like last time. And some of the miniatures will be mounted on horses. 
 

* Some miniatures will also be dedicated to other games and have rules for that game. They said not just games that they produce but did not say which games. 
 

* there will only be two pledge levels, a buy 1 girl level and a buy 10 girl level, the 10 girl level qualifies for any free stretch goals.

I will keep an eye out for it.

Decide later.

 

Maybe if the Conquistadore and aztec girl look good for my purposes.
